The return fixture came at the end of March 2019 and again ended in a draw with St Ives equalising later on to secure a point.
St Ives opened the new season with a 1 - 1 draw at home to Tamworth, but have since been beaten twice on the road. A 1 - 0 midweek loss at Lowestoft being followed by a 2 - 0 defeat at Biggleswade Town last Saturday, so boss Ricky Marheineke will be looking for his side to get a win on the board.
The Glassboys, meanwhile, will be out to put last Saturday's home defeat to Hednesford Town firmly behind them and deliver a much improved performance.
